Earlier this summer HBO premiered an M. Night Shyamalan original mini series “The Night of”, which follows the main character Nasir Khan as he’s arrested, convicted and placed on trial for the murder of a young woman he met after a night of partying . In eight episodes the show takes us on a journey into the complexities of the flawed and sometimes corrupt legal system, classism and xenophobia within the United States. I don’t want give away the show for those whom haven’t watched or are still catching up, but if you’re interested in this type of story it’s definitely worth the watch.
The second series I watched due to popular demand was original series presented by Netflix, “Stranger Things”, I’m late to the ballpark as far as this show is concerned because this show aired in July but I didn’t watch the series until late last month after the first season wrapped.
Stranger Things takes place “In a small town where everyone knows everyone, a peculiar incident starts a chain of events that leads to the disappearance of a child – which begins to tear at the fabric of an otherwise peaceful community. Dark government agencies and seemingly malevolent supernatural forces converge on the town, while a few locals begin to understand that there’s more going on than meets the eye.” This series is a fantastic mosh pit of “The Goonies”, and “E.T.” and I loved every moment of it (I watched the entire season in three days). I loved that the protagonist was a young girl #Girlpower. I’m still a little confused about a few things but I’m hoping season two will answer those questions. If you’re looking for an eighties throwback adventure/syfy story and you’re late to all things popular like me you should check this show out.
I must admit I love a good television show almost as much as a good book, I plan on watching “Insecure” another original HBO series created by and staring Issa Rae the creator of one of my favorite YouTube series “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” (if you’ve never watched the show please do so it’s super hilarious), I think I’m going to check out FX’s “Atlanta” and Fox’s new series based off the movie “Lethal Weapon”, what are you guys watching? What should I be checking out that you guys are into? Let me know in the comments section below.
This weeks episode centers around Arya Stark, Brienne of Tarth, Jamie Lannister, The Blackfish and a little of the Hound.
Brienne arrives at Riverrun to find the Kings army lead by Jaimie Lannister (who she’s in love with), she requests to meet with Jamie where she asked for a favor to let her pass through to the gates in order to convince the Blackfish to come to Sansa and Jon’s aide in taking back Winterfell. Jamie obliges her requests after a small lovers quarrel.
The Blackfish ain’t for taking back Winterfell because he needs to worry about maintaining his current hold on Riverrun. While this is happening his punk ass nephew who is a captive of the Fray is having a conversation with Jamie, where Jamie basically tells ole boy “I’m going to toss your baby boy into the river if you don’t give up Riverrun”. Because the nephew is the rightful heir of Riverrun, this is an easy win, Edmure requests to be let into the castle, but of course the Blackfish demands he isn’t because its a ploy of Jamie Lannister’s to take the castle (and he’s right) upon gaining entry Edmure tells his men to lay down their arms and open the gate. Brienne and her squire get away and make their way back to Sansa.

So last weeks post I didn’t touch at all on what’s been going with Arya Stark, after getting her sight back the many face God tasked her with killing an actress from a local traveling theater group.
After watching the performance and speaking with the woman Arya decided that she can’t be “a girl” because bitch she’s Arya Stark! This leaves Arya in a predicament, because the many face God is a “G” about his and you get three strikes then your ass is dead (and you become a face). So he tasked the little blonde haired hater with killing Arya but keeping it cute and not making her suffer.
Arya finds her little sword (the one Jon Snow gave her, I can’t remember its name) and decides she ain’t about that many face life and books passage on a ship heading back to Westeros, except ole girl forgets the threat she received from the many face God, blonde hair douche shanks the ish out of Arya, she gets away using the skills she learned via her many face bootcamp training.
